Nothing furnishes an office like a pile of fresh off the press books, especially when the lead poem just won an award, and the covers are so shiny and dramatic.

If you preordered, your books are on the way. Official publication date 25th September. You can order now from our sales partners Inpress.

If you asked for a review copy, it’s on its way. If you’d like a review copy, let us know.

And a quick reminder of launch readings in Oxford 30th September, London 1st October and Brighton 2nd October. More information to follow…

Christmas shopping with Arachne

bestsellerI’m sorry, I know, it’s barely December, but we are being busy and we’d like you to come and see us, and buy books! Cheap! Special christmassy offers. Unlike Lettice you don’t have to wait to read our latest anthology.

On this Thursday 5th, 7.45 at Lewisham Library, Actors read from Weird Lies, with a little help from me, and you get to buy books cheap! at least £1 off every book, and special bulk buy offers.

Sunday 8th at Alexandra Nurseries in Penge, we have a stall at the christmas market, 10-5pm. Same special solstice offers.

Wednesday 11th 7.45, at The Story Sessions, The Ivy House, a gamut of festive tales in a lovely pub with excellent beer, plus the same festive special offers on books.

Or of course, you can buy our books online.

Weird Lies and Mosaic of Air advance copies have arrived

Mosaic of Air and Weird Lies

Mosaic of Air (cover by Melina Traub) and Weird Lies (cover by Kevin Threlfall)

I don’t know how it happened, but in the rush to get review copies and author copies and pre-ordered copies of the books in the post, I forgot to mention to you out there – they’re here!

It’s usually the first thing I do, get the camera out and take a picture of a pile of fresh books, but somehow I forgot until now.  Don’t they look lovely? You can still order these direct from us at pre-publication price of £11 (Mosaic of Air) and £9 (Weird Lies) post free within UK until publication day (26th September) so you have just under a fortnight to get those orders in, at which point we will revert to RRP although UK postage stays free.

You can, of course, order books from other retailers, or buy them direct from us at one of many events when you also have the opportunity to get your copy signed by whichever authors are there.

Happy Birthday Overground
